The Jacksonville Jaguars may have a hard time keeping up in the AFC South, as it's suddenly become home to some of the youngest quarterbacks in the league. Heck, Trevor Lawrence is the sole signal-caller in the division with more than one year of experience under his belt, and he's not what you would call a grizzled veteran.

Then again, the Jags wouldn't change Lawrence for any of the other quarterbacks in the AFC South. And as long as he's under center (and healthy), they'll have a chance to win games. But how good is Steezy Trev truly, and how does he stack up against other signal-callers in the division after the 2023 season? This ranking tries to answer that.

4. Will Levis, Tennessee Titans

Even though Will Levis was projected to go in the first round last year, he ultimately slid to the second round. Then again, he might've ended in the best landing spot. Granted, his rookie season was full of ups and downs but he flashed and did enough to make you think that he could be the long-term answer at quarterback for the Tennessee Titans.

Sure, Willis struggled at times, but that's expected from a rookie quarterback, especially one who didn't get many reps in training camp and was inactive to start the season. You could even argue that he wouldn't have gotten his chance if Ryan Tannehill hadn't gotten hurt but the former Kentucky Wildcat made the most of his chances, which makes you wonder what took the Titans so long to plug him into the starting lineup.

Looking back, it's possible that former Titans head coach Mike Vrabel wanted to bring the former Levis slowly. This makes sense when you take into account all the glaring holes the Tennessee roster had last year. Moving forward, the Titans must surround Levis with plenty of weapons and bolster the offensive line if they want to give him a chance to succeed.
